Members of the Hillsboro FFA Chapter Attend State Convention

On the first day members toured the Ohio Department of Agriculture. Members were shown the locations where they evaluate brains and store the bodies of the animals they receive. They instructed students on the importance of keeping the meat frozen and healthy until it is shipped. The FFA members also learned the procedures taken for examinations of meat. There are many close tests they have to take in order to make sure the meat is safe for human consumption. Afterwards, the FFA chapter visited the Ohio Expo center for the first session. In this session, members heard from keynote speaker, Amberly Snyder, and she encouraged students to transform their outlook on life and make the most out of life experiences. On May 5th, members attended three general sessions including watching some of our own members receive their state degree, and the installation of the new State Officers. It was bittersweet to watch two former Hillsboro FFA Chapter members Lauren Grover and Meredith Oglesby retire their positions as State Officers.
